An estimated 17.8 million people live with a musculoskeletal condition in the UK, which is around 28.9% of the total population. The average UK office worker sits for over 8.9 hours a day, therefore it is vital to rectify this and offer employees solutions that allow them to move more! Sit-Stand’s mission is to provided the best range of active working solutions at the most affordable prices. Here’s a little more information about the company:
Why was the business created and when?
Sit-Stand.Com was the brainchild of Gavin Bradley, founding Director of the Get Britain Standing campaign and Active Working CIC. He realised that there was a need for much more affordable standing desk solutions, and in order to more office workers sitting less and moving more a better offer and service range was crucial. Until then most standing desks were sold as “Disability” products which very high price tags. Sit-Stand.Com has been able to introduce a wide range of solutions at up to 30% below the competition, benefiting from the lower cost of operating exclusively online.
